Contact With Shadow
Romance. Death by Frisbee. Molecular food. An incompetent bureaucrat and a wackedout Hollywood producer. The history of pre-Linotype printing in Singapore....what more could you ask for in a book?
“It’s a double pleasure to read this… First, there’s the joy of gleaning nuggets of knowledge about Singapore and the printed word hitherto unknown; and second, there’s the childlike wonder of never knowing what Stephen Black has in store for us on the next page.”
~ Ng Yi-Sheng
Playwright, recipient of the Singapore Literature Prize
Full of grief, Singaporean history, printing press lore and sweet memories of love, to read Contact With Shadow is to experience loss– and redemption.
The story: a Cambridge research student comes to Singapore to learn about the island’s pre-Linotype printing history. His wife, an amateur chef, is killed by lightning. Overwhelmed with a sense of loss, he struggles to write his thesis. More often than not, his words are about the woman he still loves. A bureaucratic “assistant” enters the picture, as does a Hollywood producer…
Contact With Shadow is an experience, not just a reading experience.
Contact With Shadow is a beautifully anarchic collage of historical facts and fiction rounded out with love. Spiky and tender, light-hearted and serious, it is informative, fun and moving – an unconventional love letter to a city that few take the time to get to know.
